Tools for INteractive Assessement of Projects Portfolio and Visualization of Scientific Landscapes

Project description


FET Open

Today science managers are facing a real challenge when coping with the increasingly changing nature of science. First the millions of papers published every year makes clearly impossible for anybody to have an exhaustive knowledge of all the important breakthroughs in every fields. Second, science frontiers are ever faster changing and getting blurred as fields and sub-fields are cross-fertilizing, growing or dying.
The problem of evaluation of proposals in a science management perspective is strongly related to the difficulty to assess its scientific context and its originality compared to other proposals. We propose here to use the textual information associated to every project to extract knowledge about proposal scientific content. This data will be used to locate projects in the dual spaces made of both, the whole set of proposals within a batch (or a series of batches), and the scientific landscape specific to this batch.
The objectives of this support action is to apply new tools from scientometrics, network analysis and information visualisation to portfolio analysis of proposals and science monitoring.
